Pop A Wheelie!: Dog With T-Rex Legs Gets Custom Wheels

Dude, he is CATCHING AIR.

This is Roosevelt (named after President Franklin Roosevelt, who became wheelchair-bound after contracting Polio). Roosevelt was born with malformed front legs (picture after the jump -- they kinda look like a t-rex's) but it's all good now because wheelchair pet specialist Eddie's Wheels made him a sweet set of -- what are those, 10's? There's a video after the jump which shows him speeding around on his wheels and may or may yes have brought a tear to my eye because he still moves his gimpy little legs like he's running. My only complaint? Everyone in the video calls him Rose and Rosie for short. Rose, seriously? He didn't show Leonardo DiCaprio his tits on the Titanic.

Hit the jump for a couple more shots and the video.

Thanks to MaryAnn, who challenged me to not make a Gilligan's Island reference in her shoutout. CHALLENGE FAILED.

There are Comments.
  • I thought FDR got paralyzed by a bad batch of illegal prohibition moonshine that he had delivered to the whitehouse(polio was a white lie because one of the possible chemicals that could end up in a poorly made batch had similar results commonly known and called the "jake walk effect" ) with his secret train he bought with "hidden"(Read embezzled or flagged as having gone to other projects) funds. the same train he later used to hide his condition and ferry him direct to his favorite hotel for sexyfuntimes with local "working girls

    What about a video of this dog walking without the wheels like a dinosaur!? Now that would be something!

    He still moves his front legs like they work. Why is that?

  • ItsMeMichelle

     It's a nuerological reaction, sort of like when people lose a limb and
    they still feel like the limb is there via pain or itches etc (phantom
    limb syndrome), as far as the dog is aware his brain is telling him to
    move forward so his body reacts accordingly : )
